    The car was driving about 35 mph when this happen. Engine started to have multiple miss fire. Took it to a professional shop and cylinder 1, 2 and 3 have a wet spark plug. They did more testing and found that the cylinder oil ring has failed. Car only has 81k miles and needs a new engine or engine rebuild this is beloved to be to the type of the oil ring they used on this cars.

    My car was excessively burning oil. It required multiple oil changes and i wasn't notified of the low oil until the oil was nearly empty. Volvo performed tests to confirm i had an oil consumption issue that cost over $500. The initial repair was to replace the piston rings. Now they've told me the pistons are scored from the lack of oil/consumption and i require a new engine. The lack of notifications of low oil and the damage to my engine pose a safety risk. I know this issue is occurring across a wide range of volvos.

    MY S60 2015.5 ABRUPTLY CUT OFF WHEN AT A STANDSTILL "STATIONARY" IN TRAFFIC AND ON THE HIGHWAY TRAFFIC THE WARNING SYSTEM SOUND CAME ON, AS IF CLOSE TO AN OBJECT, THEN THE SCREEN FLASHED ON THEN OFF ONE TIME. WITHIN MINUTES OF A COMPLETE STOP, THE CAR CUTS OFF COMPLETELY. THE SCREEN DISPLAYED "TURN ON ENGINE." MY CAR HAD TO BE PLACED IN PARK BEFORE THE ENGINE WOULD START. THIS HAD OCCURRED AT LEAST THREE TIMES IN 2019. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD THIS EXPERIENCE. THE ISSUE WAS UNABLE TO BE DUPICATED AND NO FAULT CODE.
